The State Visit aims to strengthen the good political, economic and social relations that South Africa and Ghana enjoy
President Cyril Ramaphosa will host the President of the Republic of Ghana, His Excellency President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, on the occasion of his State Visit to South Africa tomorrow.
The State Visit aims to strengthen the already good political, economic and social relations that South Africa and Ghana enjoy, which were formalized at the advent of democracy in South Africa. The two countries established in May 2007 a Permanent Joint Commission for Cooperation (PJCC), as a structured bilateral mechanism to provide for political, economic, social, cultural, scientific and technical cooperation between the two countries.
The State Visit is anticipated to provide an opportunity for the two Presidents to further strengthen and deepen the bilateral relations between the two countries, paying a particular focus on economic, cultural and scientific cooperation. The two leaders will further discuss issues of mutual interest and concern at the continental and global levels, particularly security, peace and stability in the continent.
President Ramaphosa and President Akufo-Addo will also address the South Africa-Ghana Business Forum which will bring together business people from both countries to explore further trade and economic cooperation.
